Jason Johnstone is an engineer who finally comes to terms with life when one night, he finds himself sitting alone at a pub that he and his friends have frequented ever since college. He wondered what had happened. Well, life happened, especially with them having to deal with their careers, marriages, and even kids.
He soon gets company from one of the regulars, Moses, while he is sitting alone at the pub. He has conversations about life and purpose with him. He soon gets to ponder these things. His life begins to change, from first asking the elevator girl, Colleen, out to getting promoted and also needing to keep his sanity and dignity intact because of the nature of his work. Do you think all will be well with him?
The Last Bachelor of Ales by Peter T. Elliott is a wonderful read. There are so many lessons to be learned. I liked how relatable the characters were in the book. Peter T Elliott did an excellent job on the characterization in the book. The friendship between Jason, Colleen, Moses, and Maria didn't go unnoticed. The dialogue between the characters was very clever, and the advice Moses gave to everyone coming across him was mesmerizing. The kindness of the characters with each other was one to be reckoned with. Certainly, Peter T. Elliott did an excellent job on the characters.
I loved everything about this novel. The pace was perfect. The conversations the characters had with each other were beautiful. Jason's desire to live a faithful and honest life was something I related with. His respect for Colleen and everyone around him was really beautiful to read. I loved that Moses was very clever and always had the right things to say to people. I appreciated the fact that Jason was kind to people and understood them. He respected them and always talked politely to them. I must say, this book was exceptionally well edited, as I didn't find any errors in the book.
Although I would have loved for Jason to have had more conversations with Charles and get to meet Moses and draw knowledge from him, it still doesn't affect my judgment of the book. Therefore, I rate this book four out of four stars. I enjoyed this one, and in consideration of the positive aspects I mentioned, I did not see any reason to remove a star from my rating. I personally appreciated the fact that it didn't contain any errors.
I recommend this book to adults and teenagers, as it would be educative to them.
